Microsoft Store Error Code: 0x80131500

When I try to access the Microsoft Store I get Error Code: 0x80131500     CV: 0H5MOZaq8Uye8k8W



I've tried wsreset.exe- no success


I've tried https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027498/microsoft-store-fix-problems-with-apps - no success


I've tried to reset my region, language, and speech - no success


I've deleted the contents of the download directory and the datastore directory in c:\windows\softwaredistribution - no success


Ideas?

Answer

Before you go through all of the Ultra-Geeky hassle (and possibly dangerous) methods above, try checking your Internet Security settings as outlined below:

Possible Fix:


Search for "Internet Options"
Open the App
Select the "Advanced" Tab
Scroll to the Bottom of the List where you can see "Use SSL/TLS"
UN-Select SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 and 1.1
SELECT TLS 1.2 and (If Available) TLS 1.3
Click "Apply"
Click "OK"
Reboot Computer
YMMV
Good Luck!
